Grant Brisbee of McCovey Chronicles covers the California League’s Top 20…including many of the San Jose Giants

A fan got tased at an Oakland A’s playoff game, per a fan’s request.

The guy was pretty angry about something, and after several requests from someone else to “tase him,” one of the police officers obeyed.

Bay Area Sports Guy has all the latest, some screenshots, and a video of the incident.

Apparently Hunter Pence was at the San Francisco 49ers game yesterday. This guy was lucky enough to get his picture taken with him.

Oh, Sergio Romo was there too.

You can vote for San Jose Giants’ Ty Blach and Ricky Oropesa for MiLBY Awards.

Oropesa is in the category of Top Moments.

Ricky Oropesa hits a mammoth blast for San Jose, his fourth straight game with a home run in the California League playoffs. The reaction of Visalia’s pitcher says it all.

Blach is in the category of starting pitcher.

12-4, 2.90 ERA, 130 1/3 IP, 117 K’s

Blach, a 2012 fifth-round pick, was stellar in his first full pro season. In the hitter-friendly California League, the left-hander struck out 117 batters, walked 18 and surrendered only eight homers in 130 1/3 innings.

And one last thing for you.

Unless of course you’re a San Francisco Giants’ fan today. But baseball days are better than non-baseball days…no matter who is playing.
